Supernova is a 2000 science fiction horror film, from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The film was written by David C. Wilson, William Malone and Daniel Chuba and directed by Walter Hill, credited as "Thomas Lee." "Thomas Lee" was chosen as a directorial pseudonym for release, as the name Alan Smithee had become too well known as a badge of a film being disowned by its makers. Originally developed in 1988 by director William Malone as "Dead Star" with paintings by H. R. Giger and a plot that had been called "Hellraiser in outer space." Jack Sholder was hired for substantial uncredited reshoots, and Francis Ford Coppola brought in for editing purposes. Various sources suggest that little of Hill's work remains in the theatrical cut of the film. The film shares several plot similarities with the film Event Horizon released in 1997. The cast featured James Spader, Angela Bassett, Robert Forster, Lou Diamond Phillips, Peter Facinelli, Robin Tunney, and Wilson Cruz. This film was shot by cinematographer Lloyd Ahern and scored by composers David C. Williams and Burkhard Dallwitz.
Supernova is the story about a rescue vessel sent into deep space to pick someone up from a rogue moon. They find both the person and an alien artifact capable of creating new matter. Every person who touches the stuff becomes endowed with superhuman strength. Since the creepy guy the crew picked up from the planet has touched the thing, and the rest of the crew becomes focused on trying to stop him. The cast is remarkably top-notch, and includes Angela Bassett, James Spader, Robert Forster, Robin Tunney, and Lou Diamond Phillips.
